"Strange question on the Vineyard: Who owns a beach that has moved?" Frank Phillips of The Boston Globe has this report.

"The Clerk, The Thief, His Life as a Baker: Ashton Embry and the Supreme Court Leak Scandal." In 2002, John B. Owens published an article bearing that title in the Journal of Supreme Court History, a publication of the Supreme Court Historical Society.
Since April 2014, the article's author has been more commonly known by his current job title, Ninth Circuit Judge John B. Owens. Owens reached the federal appellate bench after compiling a notable record of academic, judicial clerkship, and work-related achievements. This year, he celebrates his 45th birthday. Already, Judge Owens has distinguished himself as an appellate judicial writer of note, including interesting observations and notable turns of phrases in his opinions.
I am now pleased to be able to post online, with the permission of the article's author, this PDF copy of the article that Owens published back in 2002 in the Journal of Supreme Court History on this interesting subject.
